Chicago Bulls Were Bullish in Game One
On Sunday night the Chicago Bulls took game one of the Eastern Conference Finals by a score of 103-82 despite a great performance by Chris Bosh.
What were the keys to the win for the Chicago Bulls? Where did it go wrong for the Miami Heat?
Before the game even started, if you were told Chris Bosh would score 30 points for the Heat, most of you would think that the Miami Heat probably did some good damage in a win right? Well unfortunately he did not have much support at all! Especially from any other Heat player minus LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who contributed 15 and 18 points respectively. Everyone else on the Heat scored a total of 19 points! Nine of which came from Mario Chalmers!
The heat are in some real trouble if they cannot get any contributions from the rest of the team other than their three superstars. I go back to the crosstalk between Brian Noe and Brian Sinkoff on Thursday. Noe was strong in saying that sooner or later, the Heat's lack of depth behind James, Wade, and Bosh would catch up. Well that certainly was the case in game 1 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals!
The Chicago Bulls were lead by Derrick Rose with 28 points, followed by Luol Deng with 21 points. The Bulls as a team shot 47.6% beyond the 3-point arc while the Heat shot 37.5%, which was the separation between the two teams.
The two teams will face off again in game 2 on Wednesday night.
